Did you know about latest Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra?
The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is big, bold and brash. It features almost every top-end spec you could want on a premium smartphone, and going on first impressions it looks capable of competing with the cream of the Android crop and Apple’s best iPhones, although we’ll need to test it more thoroughly to see if it meets our expectations.
Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra Review
The new Galaxy Note 20 Ultra isn’t any bigger than Samsung’s top phone from six months ago, but it may be wholly better, with a huge 6.9-inch screen, feature-packed stylus and top-of-the-line specs. Of course, you’ll need a big hand and deep pockets to embrace Samsung’s new best.
Oddly, the Note 20 Ultra feels like more of a sibling of the Galaxy S20 Ultra than of the Galaxy Note 20, which was released alongside it at Samsung's virtual Unpacked event. The standard Note 20 is a decidedly lower-specced version of the Note 20 Ultra, while the Galaxy S20 Ultra is similar in terms of both specs and size.
We’ve had some brief hands-on time with the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, and here are our early thoughts.

You’ll be able to pre-order the phone right away in the UK, and at midnight on August 6 in the US. The official Galaxy Note 20 Ultra release date is Friday, August 21. Australia’s pre-order date is yet to be confirmed.
The ‘cheapest’ variant of the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra costs $1,299 / £1,179 / AU$1,849, and in the US that gets you 128GB of internal storage, while the UK and Australia base model has 256GB of storage, both with 12GB of RAM.
There’s a variant with 512GB of storage that costs $1,449 / £1,279 / AU$2,199. In Australia, there's also a 4G-only version of the phone that costs AU$1,849 but you can't buy that in the UK or US.
Whichever version you’re looking at, those are extraordinary amounts of money to pay for a smartphone, and you’ll want to seriously consider whether you need everything the Note 20 Ultra offers before investing in it. The new Galaxy Note 20 is significantly cheaper, but, as we’ve mentioned, it comes with lesser specs across the board.
